Boise will dry out after wet, windy Sunday

January 13, 2014 

Saturday soared to a high of 54 in Boise, but the weekend finished off much cooler, wet and windy. Light rain, sleet and snow flurries coupled with wind gusts of up to 32 miles per hour in the Boise area Sunday made the day feel colder than the high of 43, according to the National Weather Service.

The Boise Airport measured 0.02 inches of precipitation Sunday. This week will be drier and less windy — but inversion conditions may cause patchy fog in the mornings. Pollution could become an issue, a meteorologist said.

The high Monday is forecast to be 46, with a low of 38 overnight.

Highs for the rest of the week will be in the low 40s, and the lows will be in the upper 20s. Prepare for patchy fog in the mornings, as colder air and pollution gets trapped below warmer air aloft.

Winds are expected to be light this week. The next chance for rain or snow isn't until Saturday, but that's a long-shot, a meteorologist said.
